Washington announces new military aid to Ukraine worth $350 million


On Monday, the United States announced $350 million in new military assistance to Ukraine, including ammunition for the Himars precision missile launchers.

“Only Russia can end its war today,” US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a statement. “Until it does, we will stand with Ukraine for as long as necessary.”

The aid, which also includes Bradley light armored vehicles, missiles and anti-tank weapons, comes from funds approved by the US Congress.

“As Russia’s war of aggression and unacceptably continues against Ukraine and its heavy human toll, we bear in mind the boundless courage and unwavering determination of the Ukrainian people,” Blinken added.
